Vince Young agrees to one-year deal with Buffalo Bills
Former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young has landed a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Buffalo later confirmed the deal.
Young worked out for the Bills last week where he threw to four receivers, including David Nelson who said the six-year veteran "looked good." "We think adding Vince to our roster will create more competition for the backup quarterback position," Bills general manager Buddy Nix said an announcement of the deal. "He brings with him some unique physical abilities that most are aware of and that will make the competition interesting. It's all about improving our team." Young will compete for the backup quarterback spot with Tyler Thigpen for the backup spot behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. Young was with the Eagles last season, but was not re-signed after completing his one-year contract. He started three games for Philadelphia last season completing 66 passes for four touchdowns and 866 yards. He also spent five-years with the Tennessee Titans. Young has thrown for 46 touchdowns on 8,964 yards and rushed for 12 touchdowns and 1,459 yards during his NFL career.
